    Wow. I am very impressed with the effort on that image.Nicely done!

    …Although the notion of Ken Hankey as the next president is not a comforting thought…

      Seriously. The magazine part is most impressive. Is that an actual print-out for the TIME cover? Or is it all done inside the magic box?

    Although the notion of Ken Hankey as the next president is not a comforting thought

    Certainly not for those who can’t even spell my name.

    That may have been on purpose, to draw similarities to a certain Xmas poo from South Park, just to be feces-tious (is that how it’s spelled?)

    Also, I agree about the effort on this and all the other “bastardized” movie poster sendups. I appreciate what goes into them and hope others do, even if they are only seen online.

    That only serves to make “Mr. Smith” that much higher on the up-against-the-wall list once I’m in charge.

    to draw similarities to a certain Xmas poo from South Park, just to be feces-tious (is that how it’s spelled?)

    I’ve often considered the possibility of filing a pain-and-suffering suit against the South Park boys over that. I spent 41 years subject to every “snot rag” joke imaginable, only to be turned into an animated talking turd. I suspect there are those who think that apt. They’re on the list, too.

    Yes, Young Jeremy is most certainly the Unsung Bastard.

      “That only serves to make “Mr. Smith” that much higher on the up-against-the-wall list once I’m in charge.”

      Most people are referring to a firing squad when they say that, but I have a feeling you mean something more intimate…

    • bill smith

      What about hanke-pankey? Junior High? Nothin?

      They took it easy on you.

    My condolences on having a last name that snarky people can use to elicit comparisons to unpleasant things that are Brown.

    Time may or may not tell.

    What about hanke-pankey?

    That’s so obvious it goes without saying.

    It’s actually taken from the poster for The Ides of March only that has Ryan Gosling and George Clooney — who get paid much more — instead of Justin and me.

    • bill smith

      Yes, Ken. I get what it is taken from. I am aware it is an “homage”.

      What I was asking was how he got your image on the time magazine; if he printed out the image and held it up to his own face, or if the magic was done with photoshop. IF the latter, most impressive. If the former, still pretty cool.

    It certainly wasn’t the former.

      I think Imma it for the artist’s explanootion. But thunks!

    BTW, here’s my prediction for the most popular Halloween costume this year

    In very specialized circles, I hope.

      In very specialized circles, I hope.

      I think it would be difficult to move in circles. Perhaps if you got the ‘NASCAR’ stitching. But then you could only go in circles…

    But then you could only go in circles…

    A key problem with the film itself.
